One of the best parts about the 2017 Philadelphia Eagles season — besides the Super Bowl win, of course — was how Eagles fans overtook so many road games last year. Whether that was in Los Angeles (twice), or Dallas, or Washington, or Minnesota (for the Super Bowl), or wherever, it was always great to see Eagles fans traveling well and proudly representing their favorite team.
The latest Eagles fan takeover destination should come as no surprise: it’s Canton, Ohio, where Brian Dawkins will officially be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame tonight. Take a look at all of that midnight green:

And yes, there are Eagles chants. pic.twitter.com/YvmB2Q2puJ— Jimmy Kempski (@JimmyKempski) August 4, 2018

The phrase “We have the best fans in the world!” is often overused. But it’s obviously just true when it comes to Eagles fans.
It’s great to see there will be a ton of Eagles fans supporting Dawkins on one of the biggest nights of his life.
